Night Time Guest

We have many night time visitors that pass by.

Some, like the furry, masked ones that have a penchant for chewing on chickens, I’d rather keep on going.

But, I love seeing the grey tree frogs come out on a warm summer night.

I’m again linking up with Northwest Frame of Mind  and her 1 Day 1 World project. Click over to see what else was happening around the world in the eleven o’clock hour.

Good Fortune

I love frogs and I hear (through the wonders of a Google search) that I’m not the only one.

In general they are considered to be good luck to have both inside and outside your home.

But, more interestingly, I also hear that the Egyptian goddess of childbirth had a frogs head, and that frogs scare away werewolves.

 

This week I found one treefrog in an empty garbage can, one sitting on a flower in the garden…DSCN4487-(sm)

…one swimming in a rain barrel, one on the sidewalk…DSCN4505-(sm)

…and three catching bugs on the door.

So, if you have an impending childbirth, werewolf problems, or are in need of a bit of good fortune come on over,  we’ve got enough frogs to share!
